Outcome:$35,000,000.00 - Jury Verdict (Neufeld, Kleinberg & Pinkiert, PA)

Description:Attorney David Kleinberg, from Neufeld, Kleinberg & Pinkiert, PA was lead trial counsel in a six-week, products liability, marathon trial against Yamaha for selling a defective wave runner. Mr. Kleinberg’s trial team was able to prove: (a) that Yamaha knew of this design defect; (b) knew that many people were sustaining severe injuries due to the design defect; and (c) that Yamaha had the technology and capability (they owned actual patents!) to cheaply and effectively correct the design defect; but elected not to fix the problem that proximately caused catastrophic injuries to our client and the death of her best friend.
